“The School of Business Administration provided me with both the education and the tools necessary to be a successful business professional. Not only did I get hands-on, real-world experience that I am utilizing in my career today, I also learned the values of teamwork, how to react in an international business setting, and how to solve complex problems in an effective and efficient manner.”
